Almost golden pour a hint of caramel I’m the color with a tall dense white head. Aroma is sweet bread and a hint of alcohol overall quite light.. First taste is sweet candied sugars a light bready note and a hit of fruity hops in the finish. Pretty good.

Bottle shared at July 1st Sunday. Strange - the normal charateristics of a tripel were there - banana, clove, spice, yeast. Then the hoppiness is playful along with that.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750mL bottle. Poured slightly cloudy medium golden with a creamy white head. The aroma picked up sweet banana and cloves with a bit of white pepper and raw alcohol accents.. floral and catty hop accents. The flavor found banana, nutty notes, and lighter biscuit at the core, with spicy pepper and clove throughout.. finished with a big hop presence over the tasty yeast. Medium-bodied and creamy on the palate with smooth, rolling carbonation.. good feel, though it was sharp and too bitter in a few places.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at First Sunday. Very reminiscient of an IPA hop profile, unique there. Light on the yeast and on the finihs. Touch of banana and bit of spice. Not incredible complex or astringent but still an interesting drink.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shared 750 ml. bottle poured to snifters with a hazed, orange color, a modest layer of off white head foam, and spotty lacing. The aroma was light yeast and distinct banana & spice as clove, followed by some pleasant floral & fruit notes. Light to medium bodied, with some lively spritz to the carbonation, the taste was less expressive than the nose, but showed soft malt, some hidden alcohol, and was moderately bitter & dry, but lacked the typical, complementary, candy-like sweetness to balance that is present in most Tripels. An okay, state-side version, imo.

[Tap] On tap under the name ’Une Annee Tripel’. Bright amber color with a nice cream colored head. Nose is of pears, earthy hop notes and light yeast. Spicy flavor profile includes yeast, apple, lemon zest and fruit loops. Decent hop presence in the finish. Rich body, slightly sticky and sweet finish. A quality beer! Tasting notes from 1/2014.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a nice strong Belgian ale. It pours a mostly clear orange color with a small head of fine white bubbles. The noise is very fruity and floral. This is a big beer but not too heavy or sweet. It is slightly boozy but in such a way that brings out the floral notes. The finish is surprisingly bitter and hoppy but in a way that it doesn’t step all over everything. This is one of very few American triples that does something unique while still maintaining a strong connection to its Belgian roots.
